Show Me The Money (SMTM) is a South Korean television rap competition series held annually. First held in 2012, Show Me the Money has grown in popularity through its four seasons. The concept of the show is to select a group of promising rappers from open auditions and whittle down that number through various assignments, with contestant survival dependent on the "producers," a group of experienced rappers who also serve as mentors. Eventually the rappers are divided into small teams headed by those producers. From there each contestant will face a different team's rapper in head-to-head single-elimination rounds where survival in the competition is dependent on votes from a live studio audience.
